Goat Hill Fair and Farm


This past weekend, my friend Ali invited me to go antiquing with her at a fair in Los Gatos. It was called Goat Hill Fair because it was held at an actual goat farm (pictured above). The couple that lives here bought the property years ago and inherited all the goats with it. Now their grown children and grandkids all live on the farm too, and together they run a goat business. Isn't that straight out of a book? It's quite a spacious farm with gardens (filled with plump tomatoes and corn) and pretty overlooks — I think it'd be a really neat place to get married. It kind of blows my mind to think that just a few miles away from all the high-tech techiness going on in the Silicon Valley there can be places like this that hum along at a much slower pace.
